I am an Asian international student who attended Houghton Academy for 4 years. Shortly, it is a very small school in a very small Christian community where everyone knows everyone. It is also a very conservative Wesleyan community where alcohol and dancing is restricted; thus we do not have proms or homecomings at school. There are banquets but basically people eat food and hand out and that's about it. In terms of diversity, people from Asia and Africa come as dorm/home stay students. Students tend to hang out with the same nationality but they do mix in with others too. The school is academically challenging compared to public schools, but the teachers are very welcoming and willing to help. However they lack a lot of AP or honor classes, and additional classes besides basic subjects. The school also has extremely limited sports or activities. There are two sports available every season (summer/winter/spring). I haven't seen any big club activities going on.

Great school! Great community! I really loved it at Houghton and it was a major part in my growth as a person. The teachers and administrators care for each student so much! Amazing atmosphere.
Very college ready upon graduation. High expectations academically. Grade levels intermix so family oriented and less clicks. Communication could improve and discipline fairness for all could be revamped.
